About Rachael Grad

I'm a Toronto artist and former lawyer who has studied and worked in the US, France, Italy and Hong Kong. In 2008, I left practicing law to study painting full-time in New York City. My artwork has been shown in solo and group shows in Washington, DC, New York City, Venice, Italy, and the Toronto area.

I’m a member of CARFAC Ontario and Artists Network in Toronto.


I’ve studied painting and drawing at New York University, the New York Studio School and OCAD University in Toronto.
I hold degrees from Brandeis University (BA, Honors in Economics & Minor in French Literature), Duke University School of Law (JD) and Sciences Po in Paris, France (Diploma, International Relations).


My original paintings and artwork are currently on view on the main floor of the Hilton Toronto/Markham Suites Conference Centre & Spa and the Cotton Spa Boutique in Toronto. My original brain sculpture is on view in downtown Toronto.
